True love

In honor of St. Valentine’s day I will post about true love – for Dior. Sorry hubby, I love you too, but this blog isnt about my sappy love life! As I mentioned in one of my posts a few months ago, I’ve been craving a peachy/coral lip look. I went to Sephora yesterday and tried on about 12 different products. I found a few I really liked, but I LOVED Dior Addict Lip Polish in Glow Expert.

It’s gorgeous, dewy, natural and sexy.  Once I tried I had to buy. My husband was not thrilled to see my sack  o’ Sephora sitting on the kitchen table when I got home yesterday but I explained/rationalized that I am conducting research for the blog!

Plus, I also think about cost per wear. This will surely get me through at least 60 applications, so my cost per wear is a mere 50 cents! See, this is actually a bargain!

Back to the product itself – Sephora says “The light coral tone adds sheer, warm color to lips to give luminosity and glow”. I concur.  It’s also super moisturizing and designed to have runway appeal.

It isn’t as dramatic a coral look I was initially thinking but that didn’t matter once I tried it on. I am thinking I may still get a coral lipstick but I will wait until Spring gets closer. For now, I am rocking the DIOR.

Happy Valentines day all – hope to post more later today on the other scores I got yesterday!!!

Shadowlust

While trolling the interwebs for new things to post about I came across InStyle’s Best Beauty Buys of 2009. One of the items they feature is on my lust list – Dior 5 Colour Palette. It won best shadow. I also saw it featured in one of my rag mags recently as a fave of the celebs

The coolest part about the InStyle feature is that you can actually try it on yourself ! They just launched a new hollywood makeover tool where you can upload a photo of yourself and play around with different celeb hair-dos and all sorts of fun makeup. I found that I look best with Jessica Biel hair. Who knew?

Try it out for yourself – its a nifty distraction! I think I may GaGa myself today. I will share the results if its not too scary! Or maybe I should only show it if its scary. I will take one for the team!
